Solution

The correct option is **A** 32

Out of n students, A,B are always included.

Other 10 students from (n−2) students can be selected in n−2C10 ways.

Similarly, the other committee can be formed in n−3C9 ways.

Given that n−2C10=3×n−3C9

⇒(n−2)!(n−12)! 10!=3×(n−3)!(n−12)! 9!

⇒n−210=3

⇒n=32
